I have done a lot of different things in my life, from Primary school teacher to Humanities researcher. At the moment, I am a freelance digital nomad. I provide high level councelling for companies, mostly in the start-up and innovation fields. I am my own boss. I am quite independent in both my professional and personal life.

I was raised Catholic. Hard core. I was brainwashed by my family. I've done all the sacraments without even thinking about it because that was what I had to do. Period. Around 16, I realized I actually never believed in everything I was taught, especially the Trinity part (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit). I experienced a huge rejection of everything religious. I became Atheist.

Since several years now, I'm awakening on the spiritual side. I have looked into a lot of different paths and philosophies. I have studied thoroughly Buddhism and Paganism, but also Platonism and Existentialism. The way I have lived religion during my childhood and teenage years was totally abusive, so I am very careful about dogma and extremism.

Lately, I am interested in learning more about Islam. I have started reading Quran in my mother tongue (which is not English) and taking notes, asking questions, making remarks. I am also surrounded with Muslim friends, but I like the fact of discovering the scripture by myself and acknowledging or not what I am reading. I have a scientific mind.

I am here mostly to look through questions people have asked and I might ask myself. It is another way to discover the scripture also. And I know it will take some time to digest everything coming to me. But I am patient.
